London in the 1920s, 1930s & 1940s Dvd

A programme by Totally Archive.

As the name suggests all the footage on this dvd is archive amateur footage.

We do not pad out our dvds with contemporary footage or still photography – all ‘Totally archive’.

All the footage was shot on silent film but we include interesting informative commentary where appropriate.

The footage on this dvd dates back to 1924 and shows scenes from the 1930s through the war years until 1949.

Let us take you back eighty years or more to the capital city almost unrecognisable from today.

Buses had open tops, some still horse-drawn.

This footage was taken from a variety of sources.

Some film was shot by professional firms who ceased trading long ago.

The rest was taken by amateur photographers with a variety of equipment.

The earliest footage is from the late 1920s with a ride on a horse drawn bus around the city. There are views of aircraft leaving Croydon Airport.

A large section of London docks when they were in their heyday.

London Zoo when you could have a ride on an elephant or hold a crocodile!

The Home Guard are seen parading.

The boat race, Ideal Homes Exhibition, Billingsgate Market.

Rare colour footage of bomb damage and the Victory Celebrations and much, much more.

Approx. 60 minutes.
